The value of care: Women's work and emotional labour

29 Jan 2020 17:00 - 19:00

20 Cavendish Square, Marylebone, London, W1G ORN

FREE

Nursing "is essentially women's work" wrote a journalist in the Yorkshire Observer in 1919.

The article stated that nursing "is truly a labour of love, for their hours are long and their work demands the best that is in them, while the remuneration is comparatively low.”

This link between low pay, vocation and women’s work has dogged nursing for over a century. 

Join a panel of historians, nurses and social scientists to explore why nursing remains undervalued in terms of status and pay, and how we might change this for future generations of health workers.
